after the death of the baby panda. >> kristen fisher has more. >> reporter: one week ago exactly today i was reporting on the very happy news that this panda cub had been born. now a week later, of course, we have learned it has died. people here, especially the panda team, are just devastated, heartbroken. they had been waiting years for this. they thought this miracle cub had been born and then the devastating news just yesterday. apparently the mother let out a distress call around 10:00 a.m. the zoo's panda team knew they needed to check out the cub, but the problem is you know, when you have a giant panda, a mother panda in distress, they were worried that if they went in there and tried to rescue the cub, they might put themselves in danger. it took about an hour for them to really get their plan in place, distract the mother so that another member of the team could get in and actually take the baby panda from that habitat. and the baby just about the size of a stick of butter as the team described it. but apparently in beautiful condition, a beautiful coat, the markings around the

players have to say and our kristen berset talks with a usa today reporter who has been covering the lockout from the beginning. >> very nice evening, showers up north. we'll take you to the radar with all the showers up in pennsylvania. some showers still could make it to the metro area. we'll tell you when they'll roll in. >>> right now we hear word there could be an imminent deal between the regular referees and the nfl. however, some say no deal imminent. we caught up with a couple redskins earlier today to get their thoughts. >> i don't know. it would be a new experience for me. i've never experienced the original refs, so we'll see. maybe we'll get so more calls. maybe things will be cleaned up a little bit, but i'm not going to get my hopes up too high. you never know what can happen with those kind of situations, but it will be a new thing for me and i'm sure the guys will be pretty pumped about that. >> going into game personally i'm not really thinking about the refs. i'm just trying to play within the rules of the game. they're going to call what they're going to call.

. that is especially good news for the ravens. they've got a game with the browns tonight. our own kristen berset is at m&t stadium in baltimore with more on that. what's the story? >> reporter: hey, derek, yeah, that's right. the league wanted these real officials back as soon as possible. so they said the deal was done early this morning like you said, but they haven't officially signed anything. commissioner roger goodell lifted the lockout so they could have the officials back for tonight's ravens/browns game, big deal. things will try and get back to normal. many of the changes with the real refs back may not be completely obvious to viewers, but you may notice it's smoother and a quicker paced game, less stoppage to figure out what's going on. more importantly it's about the trust that the players and coaches have with these officials. now the two sides worked hard to end this lockout, one that went a little longer than expected. >> i think there was pressure on all of us to get an agreement from the get go. i don't think anybody wanted to go into using replacement officials. i don't think

. i'll have kristen berset detail this a little more later, but mike morris hits a home run that appears to be a home run. the umpires say it's not a home run. all kinds of confusion ensues on the base pass. they eventually tag out mike morris and replay the play. they come back, it's called a home run. so everyone's got to come back out onto the field and go through the motions one more time. so they call it a home run grand slam in the first inning. so let's fast-forward in the ninth inning now. drew on the close, he couldn't do it. john jay, a sacrifice. we go from 4-0 to 4-4. then to the tenth, kirk suzuki drives in a couple and the nats finally win 6-4. wow. as you say, bruce, it was quitea wild night out here in busch stadium. the braves won their game so the magic number goes down to one. we're staying in st. louis one more day. for now, we are at busch stadium. we have sound bites coming up from the team. they're in the lock earn room right now -- locker room right now. we'll get that for you and talk to you later during the sports section. >>> the presidential candi
